Rediscovering the role of the forester in Ireland's native woodlands
This event is worth 15 CPD points
Theatre G08, Agriculture Building, UCD

Recommend event:

Description

This lecture explores possible misconceptions regarding native woodlands and their place in mainstream forestry, and in doing so, challenges foresters to take their place alongside woodland ecologists in ‘owning’ this space. Doing so will expand the role of the forester, open up greater opportunities for pursuing Government targets, and will create a stronger link between the profession and wider society, which is placing ever more value on native woodlands and the ecosystem services they deliver.
